More on the Great American Cleanup:
Entering its 18th year in 2016, the Great American Cleanup offers structured service projects – experiential environment education, organized volunteer events and employee engagement opportunities – in more than 20,000 communities across the country. Our volunteers’ work returns, on average, $175 million in measurable benefits across participating communities over the past five years. Keep America Beautiful affiliates and participating organizations coordinate events and programs to renew parks, trails and recreation areas; clean shorelines and waterways; remove litter and debris; reduce waste and increase recycling; and plant trees, flowers and community gardens, among more than 40,000 events annually to inspire a new generation of community stewards.
This year’s Great American Cleanup theme –“CLEAN YOUR BLOCK PARTY”—encourages and empowers all volunteers and participants to take what they learn from experiencing a public space Great American Cleanup event and bring it home to organize an event on their own block.
